REFERRALS

  • 'My body has never felt better! She has helped me take the stress out of eating and I acually enjoy food MORE now following her recommendations.'

    “I decided it was time to make a big life change in my eating habits. We all know the basics of eating right but what I really needed were realistic solutions that fit my lifestyle. Pepita took a big picture approach of my health and lifestyle and offered practical solutions as opposed to simply giving cookie cutter diet advice.
    Pepita has shown me a much better and delicious way to eat and created an easy to follow eating regimen that works for me. My body has never felt better! She has helped me take the stress out of eating and I acually enjoy food MORE now following her recommendations than my previous anything goes approach. If you are serious about making a change in your eating. I highly suggest you invest in her counseling!”

  • 'Pepita guided my daugthers with much expertise, clarity, and loving support'

    “Both of my daughters are gluten intolerant. We went to Pepita for guidance, evaluation, testing of their gluten & other food sensitivities. She provided us with allergy food testing, recipes, a diet program, and supplements. Pepita guided my daughters with much expertise, clarity, and loving support, with being especially sensitive to the needs and emotions of young adults.
    I highly reccommend Pepita.”

  • 'Pepita is a wonderful nutritionist and a wealth of information! All of her advice comes backed with research, which I truly apreciate!'

    “Pepita is a wonderful nutritionist and a wealth of information! All of her advice comes backed with research, which I truly apreciate! She’s helping me manage some long-term health issues with small changes to diet and lifestyle — since I started seeing her a few months ago, I’ve identified several foods that are problems for me, redefined healthy eating for myself, and lost a few pounds and feel energized and better then I have since years. She is very easy to talk to and I wouldd recommend her services for anyone looking to improve their relationship with food, want to improve their life in a healthy way, or manage chronic health concerns. Give her a call!”

  • 'She made suggestions in a gentle way and never made me feel that I was doing the wrong thing, only that there are scientifically proven ways to improve my health.'

    “I found Pepita through recommendations of friends and all the amazing things I heard about her are absolutely true! I went to her to help me lower my cholesterol since I wanted to try diet before going on a statin, and she gave me so many helpful, practical tips. She asked me to keep a food diary for about a week, and at the next appointment we went over the details about what I’d been eating, portions, what I should change, how I should combine foods, and what foods and supplements will help with my specific problem and and how best to read labels. She is extremely knowledgeable about other challenges as well — for instance, my bordeline high blood sugar. She made suggestions in a gentle way and never made me feel that I was doing the wrong thing, only that there are scientifically proven ways to improve my health. I am indepted to her and will try to follow her advice. I highly recommend Pepita- you won’t be disappointed!”

  • "Within a couple weeks of my first line food plan, I was feeling better than I felt in two years!"

    After a couple years of misdiagnosis by my primary care physician, my women’s doctor referred me to Pepita. Initially, I thought it was a stretch that a nutritionist could heal what no doctors or my acupuncturist could properly heal. I was so wrong! Pepita really listens, she carefully studies lab results (whether she ordered them or if they were done through my insurance plan) she recommends specific tests, patiently educates me, discusses different approaches, and then provides very tailored dietary recommendations and nutritional supplements. I found out that I had a Gluten intolerance and some other food types that did not work for me. Everything she does is so specific to my health and lifestyle; never a one-size-fits-all approach. Within a couple weeks of my first line food plan, I was feeling better than I felt in two years! (And I wasn’t starving on some ridiculous fast.) I’m really grateful for Pepita’s passion and dedication to her field, and I hope I see functional nutrition become mainstream medicine in my lifetime. I’d recommend her to all my friends and family.”

  • "I'm happy to report that my migraines are down from a debilitating 4x a week to a tolerable maybe once a month."

    Before I visited Pepita I had chronic migraines, digestive problems and I’m was tired a lot. I’m thin, extremely active and pretty healthy in general but despite eating well, I was still having problems. Pepita helped me to discover that I had Food allergies and how to deal with them. She really helped me fine tune my diet and uncovered some eating habits and the foods that were at the root of my problems that I would never have figured out myself. She had me keep a food journal, gave me some delicious great recipes and lots of helpful information. I also really appreciated that she wrote notes about the visit and what I should be doing and gave me a copy. I love that! She’s very organized and has a warm calming presence. Since I’m on the anxious, restless side she was just what I needed. She also gave me some meditation tips! I’m happy to report that my migraines are down from a debilitating 4x a week to a tolerable maybe once a month. Also if I stick to what she recommends me eating I don’t have stomach aches. I highly highly recommend her.”
